Hello. We have followed the article below to provide product categories in Google Shopping feed so that in Google AdWords we can fine tune bids based on the product category:
This works correctly in the feed, e.g.
<g:product_type>Home > Lamp holders</g:product_type>
However in AdWords when we look at product_types it just lists Home
i.e. it breaks at the > in the “category path”
We are now trying other mappings to see if we can get just the primary category to show (we are using Yoast) but there are an overwhelming number of different category options in the mapping field for categories, which we just have to guess and try.
I’m hoping “One Category” will work.
1. Can you please explain (or point me to where they are explained) what all the different category options in field mappings mean. e.g. One Category, Category (not used for mapping) etc. It is a real weakness of this plugin that it is very powerful but many of the options in the selection lists seem unexplained to a plugin user.
2. Can you update the above article for the benefit of others as it looks like it doesn’t work due to Google not liking the > unfortunately.
